ScienceDaily (July 1, 2009) — The American Dietetic Association has
released an updated position paper on vegetarian diets that concludes
such diets, if well-planned, are healthful and nutritious for adults,
infants, children and adolescents and can help prevent and treat
chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, obesity and
ADA's position, published in the July issue of the Journal of the
American Dietetic Association, represents the Association's official
stance on vegetarian diets:
"It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that
appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or
vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide
health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.
Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during
all stages of the life-cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy,
childhood and adolescence and for athletes."
